I am age 78, once a Catholic priest for five years (in the 1960's), then a math teacher for 44 years up to the present day. I became an atheist a few years ago. My hobbies are music and chess.
I’m interested in his response but the cynical side of me thinks it’s just going to be more gibberish. I love that Ingersoll quote on your de-baptism certificate. If Ingersoll were alive during the internet, I think he could have single-handedly killed Christianity.

no, not really. he’s a genuine phenom, and a part of his generation that speaks in a certain language about these matters that may sound dated today. but it’s relevant and important for ET to go over exactly and specifically why he finds what used to be, once, magic words that conferred special status upon those who use them, bunk today.
anyone, including me, who used to work in the religion business and had “good” training in it can talk like this. i recall you’re a believer, so it must be hard for you to perceive that there really are some people who are interested in showing religious knowledge for the express purpose of advancing atheism.
